doesn't work. the other thing i'm worried about we know that united states is heading off a fiscal cliff. congress is going back into a lame duck session. we don't know what is going to be happening other than we know we have a huge fiscal crisis on our hands. we know there will be a lot of tax increases going into effect. americans are going to to be shocked and many things are going to trigger, expiration of the bush tax cuts or increases in affordable health care act and penalties. there are so many things that are going to trigger to increase taxes not only on individuals but businesses and certainly even upon state budgets. >> greta: what is overriding all of this, the reason we're going off the fiscal cliff is because a year and a half ago the congress and president and senate didn't do this work and pushed it up against a deadline. the reason you don't know what is happening with the state guidelines, they had a healthcare claw lau for two years. i know you are a member of congress but nobody is doing any work to get anything done. frankly if you don't know what the rules are, how can you set

fiscal cliff and sequestration cuts that it includes. the impacts on san francisco could be devastating. until we have more clarity, what congress as a whole might or might not do we will need to remain vigilant about protecting our reserves and the city's financial position. that said i'm encouraged by the reelection of president obama and certainly for the leadership that leader pelosi has given and will continue to give. we will need their leadership as the president must quickly face the challenge of his second term, avoiding this fiscal cliff. in august of 2011 congress passed the budget control act which threatened automatic spending cuts if congress failed to come up with a planned deficit reduction by 2013. these cuts are what we refer to as sequestration. this would mean an across the board cut of between 7% and 10% of all defense and non-defense federal spending irrespective of policy or its impact on everyday people. these cuts would be absolutely devastating to our national and local economies. our -- show that sequestration will reduce federal funding direct to san francisco by at least 26.5 million dollars a year, eve

deal before the end of the year. that's to avoid a fiscal cliff which may result in a significant reduction in defense spending. the fiscal cliff is a term used to illustrate drastic fiscal tightening if congress fails to reach an agreement by year's end. such a situation is feared to trigger a plunge in the economy. panetta warned that defense spending will be subject to drastic cuts if lawmakers failed to reach a consensus. >> the worst thing that could happen from my perspective is that they just kick the can down the road. all that would wind up doing is continuing to present a shadow over the defense department and for that matter, the rest of government. >> the defense department is already planning to reduce its budget by about $500 billion over the coming ten years. panetta has voiced concern that further cuts could undermine barack obama's new defense strategy that lays more emphasis on the asia pacific region. >>> japanese officials are scratching their heads about how to deal with sluggish trade. sales to foreign countries have plunged leaving japan in a trade deficit for the fourth straight month. finance ministry officials released preliminary figures shortly before the markets opened.

it's hurting our economy, businesses and is in fact hurting the markets. the fiscal cliff scenario, with its mandate for higher taxes and reduced federal spending is now just two months away. unless congress and the white house and have been this will happen. as "the wall street journal" reported friday, no doubt most companies would suffer if the u.s. goes over this cliff and economists say the tax increase in spending cuts full text my slow economic growth and will drive us into recession. my good friend terry duffy told wall street analysts last week what we've seen is corporations hoard cash from individuals with cash at the same time. there's so much uncertainty where to keep it, where it is safe and where does not. this is not the average course of business and people need to realize that. those of us outside of government must continue to make it clear to washington that compromise could no longer be considered a four letter word. in discussions and debates that prevented decisions from happening last year, we must move past that. it certainly has been a plus to hear both the president and house because the reputedly over the last two weeks that compromise is now a parties want. words

avoid the impending fiscal cliff. speaking of the economic club of new york come here is a part of what he had to say. >> so what are these looming challenge as? >> first, the congress and the administration need to protect the economy from the full brunt of the severe fiscal tightening of the beginning of next year that is built into the current law, the so-called fiscal clef. the automatic tax increases and spending cuts that make up the fiscal cliff absent of offsetting changes proposes a substantial threat to the recovery. indeed by the reckoning of the congressional budget office, the cbo, and that of many outside observers, a fiscal shock of that size would send the economy toppling back into the recession. second, early in the new year it will be necessary to improve and increase in the federal and debt limit to avoid any possibility of a catastrophic default on the nation's treasury securities and other obligations. as you recall the threat of default in the summer of 2011 fueled the economic uncertainty even though an agreement was ultimately reached. the failure to reach an agreement this time around can impose an even heavier economic and financial cost. as t
